What people are saying about Piazza Anfiteatro, Pompei

Excellent ! Good organization à la Napoitaine which is part of the experience but everything is done with a smile. Our guide, Stefano, was just perfect. Impeccable French, passionate and defender of the site! He immersed us in the history of the city with facts, anecdotes and lots of humor. 2 hours of site is good and short at the same time. We stayed 5 hours more with my 15 year old son. An unforgettable day !

Very organized. Maria is excellent at keeping group together and very knowledgeable. I felt maybe she was a little overstretch as our group was Italian and English speaking, so she had to say everything twice, but she handled with grace. Herculaneum was better for me and I did feel a little rushed through there. All in all ways excellent .

Exciting guided tour with our guide named Elisa. Very good explanations and anecdotes of daily life at the time. Our 14 year old loved it too. We then stayed on the site for another 2h30 to extend the visit and see in particular the villa of mysteries that we had not seen during the guided tour.

A big thank you to Stephano for the wealth of explanations, the dynamism, and the funny info. A small reservation concerning the organization of the group before its departure, Independently of our guide. But nothing serious.

We got on very well with Alex, our very prepared guide who gave us a lot of information, telling us the history of this city.
